Why do you doubt that it is the design? Otie was right about everything else so far when it comes to the design itself.

Well there already was on antenna on the building NYS177 This is the same structure that was hidden inside the enclosed radome of the spire, but the radome was taken away because of the expensiveness (but no one really knows if it is still going on or not it probably won't). But this is the structural antenna that was left behind when the enclosure was taken off of it.

And @ LAFD
But thats the thing, the cladding does not stop at the exact height as the current perimeter parapet columns, it carries on for another few feet, as Otie explained some days ago. And the Inner perimeter columns follow the angle of the columns below them from the very start atop the 20th floor, they have no angle or bend in them and if they did the papapet would not appear as square from above but as a 12 sided symmetrical figure, but I could say that we were both partially right aswell.

Colors might difer, I painted some sections in white and enclosed the top sections to match a rendering from Durst.

Aside from the color, the model is accurately based on the drawings I have.

Well, again I am sorry CN. I'm glad you brought this up because I had convinced most everyone that the parapet was completely vertical. I guess I just automatically ruled out a combination of the two because of the architectural difficulty, but I guess not. Just another thing to add to the list on the complexity of this project.

I'll assume steel will go up tommorow, if weather allows.

i just found this video of a simulated 1WTC timelapse, the first 30 seconds shows the progress from the bottom to the very top, also with the completed spire. it's an old video though but at least it looks fairly realistic

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Rj-NSqfRfE

how do i post an image? i'm new here but i've been watching the forum for a while

Slots that will make the tower "breathe". I made a mistake filling those vertical slots with louvers, this is what happens when you trust in the work of a guy who isn't involved on the project at all.

Didn't Obama sign the beam that will be used for topping out? Where is it now? It will be topped out when they say it is, regardless of our opinion of when we think it's "technically" topped out.

I might be wrong, but the topping out beam they using for Tower 1 that obama signed and the beam that went up at tower 4 look structually useless. Looks like it's just for show.
